I have scoured the internet looking for a diecast model of a 1971 convertible mustang. I have failed, does anyone know where I might find one? It is like chasing a unicorn. Dodgy

You might try going to a toy show. A friend of mine used to collect metal dealer promo cars. Next time i talk to him i'll ask about 71 verts.

I thought I had seen a 1/18 'vert recently, but I guess not...

AFAIK there is no 1/18 scale vert. I got one that somebody built from a fastback as a one off. Funny that it was yellow just like mine. :-)
I do have a smaller one though made by Johnny Lightning.

There is a red 73 convertible from Johnny Lightning came out about 8 or 9 years ago. I have one and my nephews want to take it out of the package and play with it when they visit. I did not know they made one for a 71 or 72. It is red.

I've been searching for a long time. Mach I's, yes. Convertibles, no.

I have a Sun Star red 71 Mach 1 with ram air, spoilers, etc. Kind of a nice die-case, but I would love a convertible version.

I have been looking since 2003, with no luck, I made a 1:24 scale with some magic it came out great.
I thouk I have close to 20 johnny lighting 71-73 mustangs, many convertibles, and 72 sprints, mint in the packages.

Yeah, I have seen the Johnny Lightning grabber green convertibles, but I think that they are a little too small to re-paint and make them look like my car, which is the ultimate goal. Isn't it really a 73 as well? It does have a painted front bumper, mine is chrome.

I have seen guys in at the Rhode Island "Hot Wheels club" dissasemble the 1:64 scale cars and complealy customize them, then reassemble them.
they drill out the 2 press point at the bottom, the when they re assemble it, they use 2 3/32 rivit.
